Ordinal indicators


Recommended Posts

Hi!

I don't know if this can be considered as a bug, but maybe it happened to someone else as in this topic. When I opened an idml file on Publisher, several texts had the "a" and "o" letters replaced by ordinal indicators.

When I looked the same file at InDesign, these texts had marked the option [Ordinal] in Character > OpenType. You can fix it by unmarking [Ordinal] (InDesign) or unmarking Ordinal in Character > Typography (Publisher), but I was wondering if this issue can be fixed.

Doesn't that seem like a user error? They're not ordinals, so why would the user say they were?

I didn't knew at first that this option was marked and the texts were normal in InDesign, so I thought that Publisher interprets as if the texts are using ordinal characters.

Sorry if I'm not explaining very well, English is not my native language and maybe I don't understand what you're asking.

You're explaining it just fine.

I'm not an InDesign user but it seems like a bug in that program that it didn't display them as ordinals. 

Thought I suppose one could say that the ordinals feature should apply only at the end of a word, in which case it could be viewed as an Affinity problem :)
